Well...since it looks like we don't have a Summer NAMM thread yet, I may as well start one. I just got back from Indy and had a pretty enjoyable time this year. I met up with Chris and Brian at the Benavente booth, as always, and was pretty impressed with the array that they had displayed. J.T., J-raj, Jens Ritter, Mike Adler, and Al Caldwell were all in essentially the same area, so it was pretty easy to touch base with everyone. For the first year in Indy, attendance was down from what I have experienced in Nashville, but it also made for a pretty quiet and relaxed atmosphere. You could actually have a conversation without being drowned out by the "weedly-weedly-weedly" squeels of some guy doing his Eddie Van Halen impression! As for new and notable items....there really weren't any that stood out. Of course, the basses on display in the Benavente, Ritter, and Adler booths were outstanding! The lack of "superstars" and big name musicians was pretty noticable, though. The highlight on Saturday, at least in my book, dealt with the recovery of the stolen Benavente SC5 from Friday afternoon. It seems that the guy who (allegedly) stole the bass took it straight to a local GC and tried to swap it for a $3,000 keyboard. One of the kids who was working in the GC stopped by the booth to share the story....pretty funny. Were there any other TBers at the show?
